What to buy on a Wednesday...

Last week I started writing and  I had to save my draft because my husband called me from the hospital.  He went to the emergency room because he had a bad pain on his back!  Oh my!  He works 1 1/2 hrs away from our house he drove himself to the hospital the poor thing! so I got the kids ready and we rushed!  He is ok now with painkillers (who wouldn't right!) lol!  So I will pick up where I left off last week:

So here I am once again on a Wednesday this time it's me, myself and I.  Yes, you know as a mom  how hard it is to make time for yourself!  We moms traded eyeliner for dark circles, salon cuts for ponytails, long baths for quick showers, late nights for early mornings, pretty bags for diaper bags.  You are always needed, your presence needs to be felt in the house, your services, your time... but yet I wouldn't change a thing.  Well this time I am making time for myself!  Even if it's only in cyberspace...I took the time to browse on Etsy and made a wish list for me.  Now let me tell you a little bit about me. Next month I will be 39, age really never matter to me until I turned 37!  then it hit me wow I'm almost 40 can't believe that one!...I am married to a wonderful husband and have three kids.  I am 5 feet 2 in tall (well I did lie on my DL only by an ich lol)  I am proud to say that in 11 years of marriage I have only gained 11 extra pounds.  One pound per year I don't think it's that bad.  I do have to start on my abdominals.  I have God given curls, my hair has always been short and I am trying to let it grow now so wish me luck on that one because I always end up cutting it short again.  Now let's go to my wish list this is the fun part!

Isn't this just the loveliest pink summer dress ever!   As soon as I saw it I said this is the one I love this one.  It is handmade by tweal plus it's eco friendly ohh I love it some more...

Now I need something to rule my curls.  This is the perfect headband!  Just wrap it around and I am good to go.  It's eco friendly as well. Thanks to saxiib for such great imagination I neck tie who would have thought??

I am always on the run, and I am always for flats so this one seemed to be the perfect pair.  Comfy yet classy I can go grocery shopping or to the bank with this pair by ParteDeMiBoutique

Do not ever let me forget my purse, without it I would be lost!  You know keys, wallet, checkbook, pens, Lego pieces, plastic guns, racer cars, girly journals, hello kitty pens, flower power bracelets (besides taking care of my kids I carry their extra stuff) This lovely Shoulder bag by ikabags would carry everything and the world may never know it.

Now, I am a low make up kind a girl but I just couldn't resist some of this fantastic Soft Pink Eye Shadow by Pony Dust Cosmetics I would love some shimmery look on my eyes.

And finally for a finish touch some colored lip gloss by BLSoaps I read in the items description that this lip tint is even tempting the vampires! Wow!

With this finished look I am off to my daily chores!


  1. Fabulous items, thanks for sharing and for featuring my dress! I really love that grey purse ♥

  2. Thank you tweal! I did check out your blog and you do have make very nice quilts!

  3. Thank you for sharing this with me.
    I just turned 40 in may and with you I started to panic at 37. Unmarried and no prospect in site but I was truly fine with that. Although grandma wasn't. I didn't cry until the night before my 40th birthday but my loving fiance reminded me of all I have done and have that I should be grateful for. It soon passed and my esty shop keeps me busy so there isn't much time for feeling bad.
    I am in another transitional stage in my life because of my back. Hope your husbands is getting better!!
    I wish you the best for your future and that you get everything on your wish list.

  4. Thank you for the section on my shoes! We need to always make time for ourselves and remember to carry our unique style!

    thank you for sharing!

  5. I hope your husband is ok! I understand the age thing. I just turned 36 and started using all anti-aging creams about a year ago. My skin does not look the way it used to!

  6. Thank you all for your get well wishes for my husband! @ Westwindcreations you're so right my etsy shops(I just opened a new one) keeps me so busy and takes stress away from me. @Mirelis time for ourselves is what we need! Today I am making time to cover my gray hair. Let's do it girls! @Miss Val let's stack up on anti-aging cream lol!

  7. I just turned 38 today (well actually yesterday but you are still in that day I moved over to thursday already), but I love every year and I'm not bothered by getting closer to 40 or beyond that. My grandma turned a 100 this year there is so much more to come.. Your'e in your summer years and who doesn't like summer! But for summer yes you have to take care of yourself and treat yourself with respect and love, go shopping :)

    PS I hope your hubbie is getting better mayby he should treat himself better too.

  8. Well Happy Birthday to you Marjon! Thank you for your kind words and great advice! I love looking at it that way! I am in my summer years! that sounds great and shopping sounds even better...

  9. Getting closer to 40 is better than the alternative right?
    I started using an age defying facial treatment when I was 25 and I think it did a world of good. My skin is not the same as it used to be but nothing else is either.
    I earned every line I have from the fun and intense laughing I have enjoyed in my life.
    Bring it on mother nature I am ready!!

  10. Thank you Linda for your words...everyday I am closer to 40 now!
